Nationals' Max Scherzer: Will start first game of doubleheader
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scherzer will draw the start in the first half of Saturday's twin bill against the Cubs, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

The Nationals have yet to announce who will start the nightcap. Scherzer's coming off a solid outing against the Cardinals on Monday, in which he fanned 11 and surrendered three runs over seven frames.

Nationals' Max Scherzer: Strikes out 11 Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scherzer threw 7 innings in a no decision Monday against the Cardinals, striking out 11 while allowing three runs on four hits and a walk.

It wasn't the cleanest outing for Scherzer in terms of keeping runs off the board, as he allowed a two-RBI single to Paul DeJong in the first and a solo shot by Yairo Munoz in the sixth, but he continues to absolutely dominate in terms of strikeouts. His K/9 sits at an incredible 12.1, and he's gotten to double figures in five of his last eight outings. He'll look to make that six of nine Saturday against the Cubs.

Nationals' Max Scherzer: Start pushed back to Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scherzer will receive an extra day of rest and take the hill against St. Louis on Monday, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

Instead of pitching Sunday on normal rest, manager Dave Martinez elected to keep the Nationals' rotation in order and slot Jefry Rodriguez into Sunday's start versus Milwaukee. This is a change from earlier in the week when it was expected that Scherzer would remain on four-days rest and bypass Rodriguez in the rotation. Looking ahead, Scherzer is in line for two starts next week.

Nationals' Max Scherzer: Picking up second start this week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scherzer will make his next start Sunday against the Brewers.

Due to an off day Thursday, the Nationals are able to get by with a four-man rotation this week, resulting in fifth starter Jefry Rodriguez's turn being skipped. The adjusted pitching schedule will allow Scherzer to pick up a second start this week after the three-time Cy Young winner worked five innings and gave up three runs -- his most in any appearance since July 12 -- in a no-decision Tuesday in Philadelphia.

Nationals' Max Scherzer: Takes tough-luck loss against Phillies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scherzer (16-6) took the loss Thursday, allowing two runs on two hits and four walks across seven innings in the 2-0 loss to Philadelphia. He struck out 10 and gave up one home run.

Scherzer once again turned in a strong outing, with the only blemish on his afternoon being a two-run shot from Odubel Herrera. Unfortunately, his offense couldn't get anything going against Phillies starter Aaron Nola. The four walks are a bit uncharacteristic for the 34-year-old, but he still holds a ridiculous 244:45 K:BB in 181.2 innings this season. Scherzer will take a 2.13 ERA into next Tuesday's rematch in Philadelphia.
